How to attach a book to its highlights and notes again when the book has been deleted from the device ?

When the file of a book has been accidentally deleted from the device or moved to another folder with an external file manager, its thumbnail gets displayed in lighter colors on your Bookshelf. Since the  2.4.2 version you can associate a file to the book on the bookshelf again: either with a long press on the thumbnail to open the book information window and press the Search button near the access path of the previous file or by simply opening the book and press Search in the popup. Then you can navigate to the new location of the file on the device (in case of a deleted file you’ve downloaded the file again somewhere) and select it.

It is important to do this way instead of re-importing the book in the library because a re-import would only create a second entry on the bookshelf, having no connection with the previous bookmarks, notes and highlights.

When you need to move the file of a book present in your library, you can do it with a long press on the thumbnail to open its information window and by pressing the Move button near the access path of the file in this window.
